  • What an amazing place for families to go and learn and enjoy Science. Questacon is a must see and do for anyone visiting our nation's capital. Hours can be spent here having fun. Sorry not many photos. Having too much fun to take out my camera. 5 stars

  • Brilliant place for children to be challenged and think. Great interactive things for exploration. There are 8 galleries which all look at different aspects of science and engage children in learning whilst being fun and interesting. The staff who we had the pleasure of interacting with were interested and engaging. Highly recommended!

  • Great experience. Highly recommended especially if you have kids. It's a very fun way to learn a lot of new things. If you can avoid the weekends as you'd enjoy it more if less people are there.

  • Questacon was amazing!! We were already more than entertained by the outdoor exhibit at the entrance. The exhibits were very interactive and informative for children and adults alike. Would recommend to everyone for a nice change of pace from all the museum's etc

  • If you're in Canberra (or deciding to go) and you haven't put this place on your list to visit, then you need to do so now. It's a fun learning center with games and interactive activities in the fields of nature and science. Great for people of all ages as there is something for all. You could typically spend around 3hrs easy if you take your time in each section.
